A Destination Wedding for Glenda and Charlie!

Glenda and Charlie live in Arizona. Glenda's daughter and family live in North Carolina and Charlie's sons live in Virginia. So they decided that Raleigh would be a good place to have their wedding. They found me on line and thought my wedding garden would be perfect followed by a delicious celebration at Vivo Italian Ristorante near by. And so we made the arrangements, The wedding day was Sunday March 6, 2016 and the day dawned with wonderful weather. Even the azaleas decided to bloom early!
Glenda's daughter, Dawn, watches her son Daniel pose for a photo. Daniel was very curious about the wedding and had a lot of questions. A very inquisitive and smart little boy!
Dawn and her daughter, Natasha, pose for a picture. You might think it was Easter Sunday! 
The garden is ready and we are waiting for guests to arrive. 
When everyone had arrived, it was time to get started getting these two married! Dawn stood up for her mother and Charlie's son, Joe, stood up for his dad. Fallons Flowers provided the pretty boutonnieres and the bouquets. Kate Pope was our photographer. She has photographed many weddings in the garden.
We welcomed everyone and then began with a prayer based on First Corinthians. Then we recognized the couple's adult children and their grandchildren.
And now they make their promises of marriage to each other. 
Charlie places the ring on Glenda's finger. 
Glenda puts the ring on Charlie's finger now. 
The pronouncement of marriage makes their marriage legal.
Charlie goes in for the kiss! 
Glenda and Charlie, thanks for finding me and my garden and allowing me the honor of joining you in matrimony. I know your families are excited about your relocating "back East" soon! I wish you all the happiness in the world.
